Silver Storm

by Shane Morris

Silver Storm 24:04


Silver Storm is three compositions of light atmospheric ambient works which ebb and flow in a spiral motion reflecting the surreal landscape and timeless solitude I experienced in a crippling ice storm in the winter of 2009.

At home with my dog "Siskiyou", in the woods along the White River in Arkansas, I watched as a subtle but continual rain slowly froze everything. Limbs of trees began to break from the accumulation of three inches of ice, shutting off roads and falling on power lines which resulted in hundreds of thousands of people without electricity in freezing temperatures.

Without power for two weeks and cut off from the world, I was able to stay warm by dressing in layers and using my gas powered cook stove to generate heat in the house. To fill the time from day to day, I would use my car to recharge batteries for a field recorder and camera. When I wasn't reading books, I would bundle up and document the environment I was within. It occurred to me early on that the field recordings and photos would be the basis of an album.

The frozen world I would walk in each day always reminded me of a crystalline landscape both visually and sonically. I used this idea of crystals in sound as well as a cultivated use of space, silence, and breath as the basis for the music crafted on Silver Storm. Each track is also founded on the field recordings of winds, falling rain, cracking limbs, and melting ice I recorded during the storm.

Recommend for headphones

This album is dedicated to my good friend of fourteen years, Siskiyou. RIP
